Cornelis Pronk (1691-1759) was well-known Dutch designer and was appointed by the Dutch East India Company in August 1734 to make designs for Chinese porcelain, four of which are recorded in the company books in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam. He left the employ of the company by the end of the decade and today we attribute several other designs to him as seems probable by stylistic comparison. Nine probable designs are listed by David S. Howard and John Ayers in China for the West, vol. I, p. 294 where other probable designs are also discussed.

As part of our ongoing efforts to keep our auctions fair and transparent, we recently updated our terms and conditions. We encourage you to read through these updates carefully (§34-50) to make sure you understand them. These updates are specifically designed to protect all serious and committed buyers from bidding against non-payers, who attempt to inflate prices without the intent of paying their auction bills.

Main points include:

  • Bidders must complete their due diligence and clarify all questions about the objects before the auction. After the auction, Zacke will not answer questions from bidders unless the purchase price has been paid in full. Of course, this does not apply to questions concerning shipping, insurance, customs, etc.
  • A sale cancellation of any kind after the fall of the hammer is not possible. The only exception to this fundamental rule is our guarantee of authenticity [the Guarantee].
